Read full description of the books The Emperor's Candlesticks:My first time reading Orczy and I decided on her first novel published in 1899, which when it was first released was not meet with the success, she had hoped for. I thought it was really quite creative and suspenseful to the very end. The candlesticks are the making or breaking of a young man and a charming lady, but what the importance is the reader to find out. This story is a espionage political thriller. I did not read this edition but a collection edition by Delphi with her works. Also a movie was made in 1937 with William Powell and Luise Rainer, which at some point I will have to watch but I see Ivan as a younger man, even though Powell is a talented actor, but when I see the movie I can judge better.
